Waterstroompie laat jou dink aan Ps. 23.

Perfek! Die tuin is 'n lushof, die eienaars is ongelooflik vriendelik en dierbaar! Wens ons het meer tyd gehad om daar te spandeer.

Ontspanning en rustigheid op sy beste.

Ons het 'n ongelooflike naweek-wegbreek geniet by die Africa's Eden Guesthouse - 'n wonderlike "change-of-scenery" van die besige stadslewe. 'n Mens is omring deur natuur en ervaar werklik hoe dit voel om te ontspan.

Relaxation and tranquility at its best.

We enjoyed an amazing weekend break at the Africa's Eden Guesthouse - a wonderful "change-of-scenery" from the busy city life. One is surrounded by nature and truly experiences what it feels like to relax.

Will surely go back in the future.

I recently stayed at Africa's Eden Guesthouse and found it to be a truly serene oasis. The warm hospitality, lush surroundings, and tastefully decorated room created an inviting atmosphere. The personalised service and peaceful ambiance make it a standout choice for a memorable stay.

Ons was in Pietermaritzburg vir 'n atletiekbyeenkoms.

Ons was vir drie ongelooflike warm lentedae in Pietermaritzburg. Africa's Eden het 'n ongelooflike tuin met 'n lieflike swembad waar my kinders lekker gespeel en ontspan het tussen hulle sportaktiwiteite. Dit was vir ons 'n heerlike plek om te bly.

Rus vir jou siel. Die eienaars is so gasvry.

Wat 'n rustige atmosfeer. Salig om langs die geluide van 'n waterstroompie wakker te word. Die eienaar het uit haar pad gegaan om ons seun se rugby klere op kort kennisgewing te was, sonder enige kostes. Sal beslis weer in die toekoms daar gaan oornag. Jy voel sommer tuis.

Rest for your soul. The owners are so hospitable.

What a peaceful atmosphere. Blissful to wake up next to the sounds of a water stream. The owner went out of her way to wash our son's rugby clothes at short notice, at no cost. Will definitely stay there again in the future. You just feel at home.

Absoluut fantasties!

Beide eienaars is super vriendelik en bedagsaam. Daar is altyd tyd vir gesels en hulle het harte van goud. Hierdie plekkie word elke dag skoongemaak en ons sal vir skeer weer daar inboek. Pragtige tuin en lieflike uitsig. My seun het lekker met die hond gespeel en woef se kind het later vir ons gewag as ons stop met die voertuig.

Glad nie vriendelik nie!

Ek was baie teleurgesteld. Bly by baie gastehuise en almal se reëls is gewoonlik dieselfde. Nie by Africa's Eden nie. Jy mag nie eers lede van jou familie nooi vir koffie nie, al het jy hulle 5 jaar laas gesien. Die dame was somer baie mislik!

I was very disappointed. Stay at many guesthouses and everyone's rules are usually the same. Not at Africa's Eden. You may not even invite members of your family for coffee, even if you haven't seen them in 5 years. The lady was very nauseous this summer!

Africa's Eden Guesthouse 's response

Ek is baie teleurgesteld dat ons nie meer reels kan he wat almal se verblyf hier respekteer en genotvol maak nie. Soos ons naam beskryf "Eden" kom mense hier bly omdat dit rustig en stil is. Ek het my oor n mik geskrik toe ek skielik gille en baie harde gelag en praat van hierdie gas se balkon hoor. Klomp mense wat nie hier in geboek is nie, wat so lawaai maak en ons ander gaste versteur. Ek het baie beleefd vir die gas verduidelik dat daar n kort lys met ons reels reg langs hom teen die muur is, en heel bo op die lys, dat net mense wat hier gaste is, toe gelaat word. Dit is in almal se belang.

Our stay was a warm, welcoming and relaxed weekend.

We had a pleasant stay at Africa's Eden. Our hosts were most welcoming and accommodating. Our cool, natural surrounds were a wonderful respite after a day out, exploring in the heat of summer. We thoroughly enjoyed the melodious sound of the flowing stream and birds twittering. It was well worth the price and we highly recommend it if you wish for a calm, back-to-nature environment with the trimmings of the city.
